Remember the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter love child scandal that the National Enquirer reported last year? Edwards dismissed the accusation he was cheating as, “…false. It’s completely untrue, ridiculous… Anyone who knows me knows that I have been in love with the same woman for 30 plus years.”
Well, fast forward several months. Today the National Enquirer reports that their reporters actually witnessed former Senator John Edwards entering the Beverly Hilton at 9:45pm to visit Rielle Hunter and her new baby. Then at 2:40am, several National Enquirer reporters caught him sneaking out of the hotel and approached him to ask why he was visiting Hunter:
Edwards went out of the hotel briefly with Rielle, they were observed by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER and then went back to her room, where he stayed until attempting to sneak out of the hotel unseen at 2:40 a.m. (PST). But when he emerged alone from an elevator into the hotel basement he was greeted by several reporters from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.
Senior NATIONAL ENQUIRER Reporter Alexander Hitchen asked Edwards why he was visiting Rielle and whether he was ready to confirm that he was the father of her baby.
Shocked to see a reporter, and without saying anything, Edwards ran up the stairs leading from the hotel basement to the lobby. But, spotting a photographer, he doubled back into the basement. As he emerged from the stairwell, reporter Butterfield questioned him about his hookup with Rielle.
Edwards did not answer and then ran into a nearby restroom. He stayed inside for about 15 minutes, refusing to answer questions from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER about what he was doing in the hotel. A group of hotel security men eventually escorted him from the men’s room, while preventing the NATIONAL ENQUIRER reporters from following him out of the hotel.
Noting that the MSM had no problem reporting on the Rush Limbaugh/Oxycotin story that the National Enquirer also broke, Byron York questions whether the MSM outlets will even touch this one.
